I suspect your wiring will cope with 100 watts, so no problem with simply
putting th eheadlights straight in. I had problems with wiring 150w
spotlights into a Discovery and had to use a relay in the end to stop wires
melting, but that was a combined 300 watts which is fairly meaty.
If you have any doubts about your wring put in a cheap relay form Halfords,
about 12 pounds.
You will not blow any fuses, however, if you do simply put the next step
fuse in. If running 10, then put a 15 in.
I really cannot see any problems though.
I suspect the headlights goign dull on idling has more to do with your
alternator and I suspect you need to upgrade it to a higher output.
P.S. Still trying to get my 110 ready for Africa in six months time. You
should try wiring in , banks of rear and front spotlights, fridge, GPS,
three cigarette lighters and interior lights.
